I have installed a 3C905B-Tx in a linux box in a token ring- ehernet
The card works fine but regrettably  it only sees the machines on the
ethernet side of the net it cannot ping the machines on the token ring
When I ping to the broadcast addresses the machine receives the answers
of all the machines of the net.  The card works fine on W95.
I suspect that the problem is on the big endian- little endian  problem
but I dont know how to fix it.
Below is the network diagram of the network
